Hello! I’ve been on vacation for the past week or so. Let’s touch base with the weather again by taking a look at Cincinnati, right in the middle of the country. That should give us a pretty good idea how things are going.
At 552PM, eastern time, Cincinnati was reporting a temperature of 82 degrees with partly cloudy skiees. A pleasant batch of surface high pressure was parked over the Great Lakes. Aloft, a broad area of low pressure over Hudson Bay was ensuring that southern Ohio and northern Kentucky remained cool. Tropical Storm Gert over the southern Gulf Stream was managing to draw any moist flow away from the pull of the subtropical trough in Canada, allowing Ohio Cincinnati to remain dry for the time being.
As Gert and the Canadian low shift to the east, they will allow for a surface ridge to drive to the north ahead of the next upper level trough. With it will come a return to warm, humid air more associated with the dog days of summer. There s a chance for some increased cloudiness as the warm air presses north, but the rain showers attached to the warm front should emerge north of Cincinnati.

It’s been unseasonably cool across much of the eastern portion of the country, but it looks like that is going to be changing course over the next few days. Here is a look at the satellite over the eastern US, with Gert pictured off the coast.
